This video does a good job of explaining why and when when the air quality will get better. Short answer: next week.

[Sound On] At Kehoe Beach in @pointreyesnps hundreds of blackbirds gather around sunset in the thick fog and smoke.

Via Point Reyes National Seashore "For those of you who have been asking about the wildlife in Point Reyes during the #WoodwardFire, we thought you might be happy to see that this bobcat was caught on camera just outside of Incident Command Post (where we coordinate as a team) yesterday."

It was orange yesterday. The smoke is so thick right now. Some additional information about all of that:

"To get a sense for how dark it was in CA yesterday, here are solar radiation observations from my backyard weather station for 3 recent days. Much darker than a typical foggy day, and it was effectively sunset ~3 hours too early."

"The orange skies this morning are a result of wildfire smoke in the air. Strong winds over the past few days transported ash from fires in northern California and the Sierra Nevada into the region.

These smoke particles scatter blue light & only allow yellow-orange-red light to reach the surface, causing skies to look orange. If smoke becomes too thick in a certain area, most of the light will be scattered & absorbed before reaching the surface, which may cause dark skies."

"Very little change in the smoke across the SF bay area the next 18 hours."
